Superga X Luisaviaroma.

Can we take a moment to appreciate these dreamy Superga sneakers? When I first saw that Superga would have a special collection with online luxury retailer Luisaviaroma, I knew I had to get in on it (especially after missing the Superga and The Row’s collaboration a few years back 😦 ). These special editions come in velvet and canvas options, ribbon laces and a chunky platform. I can’t wait to wear them out!

    

And I recently spied Superga’s latest collaboration with accessory brand, Charlotte Simone, and the collection looks so cute!

Wish List Wednesday: Le Specs Liar Liar.

There’s one major item I have on my wish list that I’m hoping to get before the end of the summer, and it’s Le Specs’ ‘Liar Liar’ sunglasses. Oversized, with tortoiseshell and a subtle cat-eye, these truly are the shades of dreams!

   

Truth be told I’ve actually had my eyes on these for a while, so definitely watch this space.

Cardigans for Fall.

We may be in the throes of summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to the coming season when temperatures will drop and we’ll be in need of something a little warmer. After my weekly roundup of the latest from net-a-porter, I saw a trend of thick knit cardigans (and jumpers) with various designs that’d look great come September when it’s cooler outside. There was one brand in particular that really stood out to me, Alanui, a newcomer to the site whose cardigans look especially warm and cosy, and would look especially comfy with jeans and sneakers.

     

Check out more from Alanui here.

Wwake.

As a strong believer that less is more, it makes perfect sense that I’d be going crazy over my latest net-a-porter finding: Wwake. Based in New York, Wwake is a fine jewellery line focused on delicate, dainty, stackable pieces that look effortless and super chic. But don’t let the simplicity fool you, as its this same simplicity that makes the pieces truly stand out, and is why my wish list is now currently packed with beautiful gems I’ll be saving up for.

              

Less truly is always more. For more, check them out here.

Gowns, Gowns, Gowns.

While it’s true it’s not every day I’m able to wear a fancy gown… in fact come to think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever worn one, but that doesn’t stop my undying appreciation for a floor-length dress with a bit of character and charm. Though some are not ones that would usually appeal to me (Marchesa I’m looking at you even though I’ve been in love with you gowns for at least over a decade), there’s still something about all of them that I love. Case in point, the gowns below that drew my attention for various reasons.

REEM ACRA

   

VALENTINO

   

MICHELLE MASON

   

MARCHESA

      

I guess I’ll have to make do with just looking.

Rebecca Vallance.

Despite being on the fashion scene since 2011, it’s taken me up until last weekend to discover Rebecca Vallance. The Australian born designer started as a fashion publicist before turning to creating her own brand that has grown from a small local clothing line to an international presence, being stocked in stores like Harvey Nichols and Intermix, as well as on luxury online stores like net-a-porter.

Of her clothing you can expect structured feminine pieces, that while ladylike are not ultra-dainty, but movable stylish garments that cater to the modern woman. You can also expect lots of flamenco-style ruffles and pleats for added texture and character.

    

Though the designs are undeniably great, their price point is also something to look to as it’s not excessively expensive – at least not compared to some other designers.

See more of Rebecca here and here.

RE/DONE.

There’s a new denim sheriff in town and it goes by the name of RE/DONE. Founded by Sean Barron and Jamie Mazur, RE/DONE is so much more than a denim company, having first started online before growing into the e-commerce brand it is today.

      

While I’ve never really been crazy about jeans – I only own one pair – when I first saw their jeans, there was something about them that I couldn’t ignore, so now naturally I’m in need of practically every pair they make, including one very chic denim mini skirt that reminds me of teenage style years. They recently started selling on net-a-porter (which is where I actually discovered them a few weeks ago – and yes my wish list is full of their pieces) and I’ve been spotting their jeans everywhere, ever since.

RE/DUN

You’re sure to be seeing a lot more of RE/DONE in the future. Check them out here and here.
